Thank you to TBR and Beyond Tours and the author for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
A set of magical triplets, two warring dynasties, and a broken crown waiting for its rightful owner…
Deep within an enchanted forest lies a castle where a set of triplets and their sorceress mother have lived for years — safe from the decades-long war for the Raven Throne that rages in the kingdom beyond. Cordelia, one of the triplets, has the power to become any animal with just a thought, and she yearns to discover more about the world outside her castle.
But one day, the world comes to her, when the eldest of the triplets becomes the newest heir to the throne. Knowing that being named heir means certain death, Cordelia’s mother hid the truth about which child is the eldest when she hid them in the forest. When her family is captured, it’s up to Cordelia to use her powers to keep her siblings hidden and discover the truth about the Raven Heir — before it’s too late.
A thrilling new fantasy full of magic, adventure, and the power of family.
A brilliant middle grade fantasy novel, with a very interesting plot and great plot twists ! I was very surprised of how much I enjoyed this book. It was very unique with its own magic and own tricks. One of the character, Cordelia, can change into any animals she wants which is super helpful during a fight, isn’t it ? I really liked that the characters were triplets, I think it’s the first book I read when the plot is set around triplets and the fact that one has more power than the others, but they don’t really know who it is.
How stunning is this cover ? This is (personally) the reason why I wanted to read this book. I love the colours and how the drawing of the animals spirit. It matches perfectly the book.
If you are looking for a fantasy novel for a young reader this one is perfect to start or continue to read! I think it could be the first one I would get my children to read if they ask me for a fantasy novel, when they are older.
